Margot’s Story

In 2013 and at just 14 months old, Margot Martini was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of Leukemia. After finding a suitable blood stem cell match and following a bone marrow transplant, Margot relapsed and sadly died in 2014 at the far too early age of 2. The number of people worldwide in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant is frightening, and on average only half of those in need of a match will succeed in finding one. Team Margot was inspired by little Margot and was set up in her memory, doing all they can to help others in their battle against blood cancer. Let’s do our bit to help, too.
